NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

The Tulane men's basketball team finished last in the American Conference standings with a 3-15 record. Head Coach Ed Conroy's overall record with the Wave is 90-102. Many around the program feel this could be the end for Conroy, but he isn't giving up just yet.

"I put a lot of pressure on myself, my expectations are extremely high," said Conroy. "I came here because I thought Tulane basketball could win at the highest level. I believe that more now, then when I first came here. (I) love this city, love this university. I don't think there's any question success is right around the corner."

Three weeks ago, Tulane Athletic Director Troy Dannen voiced his concerns with the under-performing program. 

"There isn't any question it's not meeting anyone's expectations. If it's meeting someone's expectations, then that person needs expectations that are significantly higher, because mine are. For me, if we're not in the top half of the league, then it bears a careful evaluation of why not, and what it's going to take to get there. That's where I'm at with basketball right now," said Dannen.

Ed Conroy's current contract expires after the 2017 season.
